Our stylish hotel is housed in a historic and beautifully restored Luytens’ 1930s’ neo-Georgian building and located in London’s literary heartland, only moments from Covent Garden, Soho, Theatre land and Oxford Street. Here guests are spoiled for choice. Take the quintessentially English Dalloway Terrace, one of London’s most instagrammed restaurants, celebrated for its delicious Afternoon Tea; The Coral Room, a Brudnizki-designed ‘Grand Salon Bar’ and, the intimate Bloomsbury Club Bar, where finely crafted cocktails celebrate the colourful lives of the 1930s’ Bloomsbury Set.
Meanwhile, elegant guest rooms and sophisticated luxury suites feature contemporary décor charmingly blended with period architectural detail. Like its iconic architecture, The Bloomsbury evokes a sense of glamour – one inspired by the past yet emphatically contemporary.

We were gifted a Luxury Afternoon Tea through ‘Buy a Gift’ and we chose to take it at The Bloomsbury Hotel in London. We got there and was shown to our table and after a short while the waiter came over to see us. He asked if we had any dietary requirements or anything we didn’t want on our Afternoon Tea. The only thing we said was ‘no mustard on the beef and mustard sandwich’. I had read another review somewhere that the sandwiches were pre-made but wasn’t bothered by that but it proved it when the food came out and there were no meat sandwiches and extra non meat sandwiches had been put in their place. We had the usual tea and coffee too. We were given our Prosecco which was the Luxury part of the deal and I asked for a beer as well. There was no draught as apparently all the pipes were being cleaned so settled for a bottle of Peroni. This was brought to me with the lid still on and the waitress walked away, I presumed to get a bottle opener. After a while I gave up waiting and had to ask! We finished our Afternoon Tea and I asked to settle the beer bill. £6 for a bottle of Peroni was steep enough but they had the cheek to put a 75p service charge on too! For 75p I couldn’t be bothered with the argument! All that said the selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes was delicious but sadly the service, in our opinion, didn’t really come up to the the standard you’d expect from a top London hotel.
hotel was overall good however they overcharged for room service £6.70 was taken off Ryan who works as a waiter was a good and friendly costs are to high for food. The hotel is well placed but they need to consider doing changes to breakfast room
The Bloomsbury is the best hotel I’ve ever stayed in around London, absolutely gorgeous smell as soon you walk in, friendly and attentive staff - from the front desk, concierge, doormen, cleaners. Rooms are clean, cosy and modern. The whole ambience of the hotel is calm & relaxing with the added touch of luxury. The added touches didn’t go unnoticed. I feel this hotel suits a quiet relaxing stay if that’s what you want or a more vibrant and lively stay with the bars and restaurants on offer or a blend of both. They’ve achieved a perfect combination. I felt at such ease and found myself saying “oh that’s good” to everything, such as the ability to cast your phone to the tv so you can watch Netflix etc… water was lovely and hot. Robes lovely and soft. Comfortable beds and pillows. Didn’t hear any noise or disturbance through the night (or anytime) and I usually find with London hotels that you usually do. The location is perfect, around the corner from Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road station. We had room service one evening and it was divine. Cocktails beautiful. After a loss in the family, this was exactly the place we needed for some much needed R&R and away from the day to day. Myself & my mum stayed for 2 nights, we could have easily stayed for longer, in fact we’ve decided to make it our annual girly treat. Don’t hesitate book it, you will not be disappointed. Thank you to all at The Bloomsbury
